Hand-engraved Peruvian Gourd Ornament

Peruvian artisans have shared generation upon generation a technique of working gourds that is still considered unique around the world. The name in Spanish is "mate burilado", and they are appreciated all over the world for their singularity and durability.

The gourd you see here is large enough to be placed in your centre table and used as a bowl for small items, like your keys. However, the core of its value is in the beauty of its designs. The one you see here, for example, uses just three colours yet still captures many scenes that are common in the Andes mountains of Peru. You can see for example men shepherding their animals or women working in the field.

The result is beautiful.
